HLF Stage 3 (Delivery) funding has been awarded for the ‘Stone Age to Corinium’ project at the Corinium Museum, Cirencester. This project includes the creation of new Early Age galleries to display exciting new discoveries alongside significant existing artefacts from the area covering the period from Stone-Age to Early Roman times. It also includes the creation of a new Reception Foyer, refurbished gift shop, garden and new Discovery Centre. The project involves alteration works to a Grade II listed building. Detail design is progressing and works on site are due to commence later this year.
Amanda Hart, Museum Director, said: “This project has been a long time in the planning so we’re delighted that the National Lottery has given us this support. This project will transform the front part of the Museum, creating a warm welcome for visitors and stunning new galleries which highlight the star objects from the prehistoric Cotswolds. The Discovery Centre will be an inspirational learning space for a diverse range of activities to be enjoyed by all our visitors”.
